Auditing in MapR

MapR allows you to log audit records of cluster-administration operations and operations on directories, files, and tables.

Auditing creates audit records of maprcli commands, REST API calls, and other actions performed on a cluster through the MapR Control System (MCS). Auditing records many different types of operations on directories, files, MapR-DB tables, and streams in log files in various locations in your MapR cluster. You can then process the information in these log files with Apache Drill or other tools. For an overview of how auditing works and the wide variety of ways you can use auditing, see Auditing of Cluster Administration and Operations on Directories, Files, and Tables.

More information is available for using auditing in cluster administration or file system and table operations. The information on audit log files can be used to interpret auditing messages.
